Description 

Blast up the thin crack and flake system to bigger holds near the top.


Location 

In the Laceration Jam area of the Southern Ramparts. About 150' North of the Southern escape Gully or 50' South of Laceration Jam.


Protection 

TR. Potentially leadable, but would be pretty dicey with some of the flakes being fairly thin and hollow-sounding.

After I did some fairly extensive cleaning, I did an on-sight lead of this line on June 21, 1986. At the time I thought I did the FA of the line, maybe not. Here's the route and gear description from my notes.

Overhanging face to right of Socket Wrench. Climb obvious finger and hand crack 40' to where it ends and ledges go off left. From here, climb straight up, protecting a seam with 1.5-2.5 stoppers and #1 and 2 RP's, while using flakes for holds. Work up and left (crux) until you can step off on top of Socket Wrench (5.10).

Gear: set of stoppers and RP's, cams to #3 Friend.
